Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering
College of Science and Engineering
  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2018
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 125
  • Required credits within the major: 109
  • Degree: Bachelor of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering
The bioproducts and biosystems engineering curriculum provides a broad fundamental scientific and engineering background to harness the molecular building blocks of renewable resources for sustainable utilization, to design and develop biological systems, and to help improve the environment by developing solutions for environmental and natural resource issues affecting soil, water, and air. The curriculum offers three areas of specialization: bioproducts engineering, food engineering, and environmental and ecological engineering. The program produces graduates who have a broad fundamental engineering background, including mathematics, physical science, biological science, and engineering science and design; serve the engineering needs of clientele in the areas of bioproducts, bioprocessing and food, and environment and ecology; are successfully employed in engineering jobs in industry, consulting, government, or academia; are engaged in professional development and lifelong learning.
